can't find a place to add MX record

hello all: I’ve installed iRedMail, but when I tried to follow this link ( to add MX record, I can’t find it under the DNS tab in my control panel.

I actually used another vendor’s DNS server for my domain name translation. I don’t know how to migrate to DO’s DNS servers.

Thanks, Jon
